It’s quarterly favorites time again! I read quite a few books this winter, and I liked the majority of them. However, there weren’t all that many I truly loved. The five books below are all books I loved, books I look back on fondly, and books I think will stay with me for a very long time.
Click the links below to see my monthly wrap up for each of the months included in this favorites post. Any reviews I’ve done for these books are also linked.
- Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng. This book wasn’t even close to what I was expecting, but it totally blew me away. It’s historical fiction, set in the 1970s, that follows a biracial family as they face a tragedy in a small town. I loved this book so much, and I definitely think it’s one everyone should read.
- A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman. This book started out slow, but grew into this incredible story. I don’t want to give too much away, but I wouldn’t be surprised if this book ends up being one of my favorites of the year.
- Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman. I mean, it’s Neil Gaiman and Norse mythology. I would have been very surprised if I didn’t love this book.
- A Conjuring of Light by V. E. Schwab. This was not only a great book, it was a fantastic finale to one of my favorite series. It’s enormous and beautiful, and I had so much fun reading this. It definitely cemented the Shades of Magic trilogy as a favorite for me.
- The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. This was a reread, but I had to include it because I fell in love with this book all over again. I am so glad I finally revisited it, because it’s just so magical. The experience I had reading this book is one of the reasons I went to grad school for English and creative writing, and reading it after I graduated was kind of great.
